This is the only flower on my bergenia and it's hidden behind a leaf 🙄. I think it needs moving when it's finished flowering 💞 #bergenia #elephant-ear #pink

Is it a young plant Jane? Mind you, you did say you thought it might need moving so perhaps it’s being a bit overshadowed by another plant? 🤔😊 @pelly

It's three years old and already been moved once. It's not overshadowed and should be in a good place but it's not thriving. I need to find It's happy place Karen. I'll get my thinking cap on 🤔 @KOutdoors

It’s a pity the leaves are disproportionate to the flowers. It spoils the effect somewhat 🙄 @kez001uk @Auricula

@pelly I had to look and I see what you mean. They’re big ol’ leaves!

Morning everyone, have a super Saturday despite the gale that’s blowing outside. I had to search for this little flower as it’s facing the fence, I don’t think it’s very happy where it is as it’s hardly put on any growth since I bought it last year, I’ll have to find a new spot for it #bergenia #elephantsears #pink 🙋‍♀️💕

Apparently they like full sun to partial shade and where this is is probably pushing “partial” a tad too far Pauline @flof1952 🤔

Don't lose heart @pelly it grows like a weed here in all sorts of situations, sure once yours gets established it will romp away 🌸

Maybe I haven't given it enough time, it was only a small plant when I bought it Sue @churchfarmgarden 🤔👍

I have 2 large clumps of these. I love them as they always put on a brilliant show. They often flower again during the year but they are at their best now. We chop some off to keep it tidy and in its boundary. One is in an east facing border and the other slightly smaller clump is by the garden wall. However I have had them for about 30 odd years so persevere, it is worth it in the end 👌💖💖
